    Hi,

    I´ve read some posts in Prevx forums but I still have some doubts and I'd be glad if you guys could help me out!

    1 - Will Prevx slow my online games or downloads (utorrent)? Since It's on cloud.
    2 - Does Prevx have any resouce like F-Secure DeepGuard?
    3 - How does the keylogger protection on SOL work? Does it work for all keyloggers or just the most popular? Because my main concern is my safety when I shop online.
    4 - If I decide to wait for v4 before buying, am I going to be able to shop on Hitman Pro's website and get 1 year free Hitman Pro lincence?
    5 - Is Prevx supossed to be the main real-time protection or is it made to complement some other AV since it has no known conflict with others Avs?

    Ty for you time,
    Sorry for my bad english

    1. No
    2. Not sure what that is but Prevx is a very strong Anti-Malware also has SafeOnline.
    3. That is what SafeOnline is design for to protect your Online Credentials even if you are infected http://www.prevx.com/safeonline.asp
    4. I'm not sure but PrevxHelp may know?
    5. You can use it as your main AM,AV http://www.prevx.com/certification.asp or run it with most AV's without problems!

    HTH,

    I'm unsure on your point #4 but it would be best to go with v3 if you want to leverage the Hitman Pro deal.

    F-Secure's DeepGuard blocks attemts to modify system files and registry entries and also blocks attemts to deactivate security programs.

    In that case, yes - Prevx does have most of this functionality :)

    Should have waited till vers. 4 is released. That shouldn't be to far off, now you'll possibly have to pay to upgrade.

    Not for the same features that you receive in P3.

    That's one area where I'm a more than little confused.

    Questions:

    Will 3.5 remain as it is with it's issues unresolved or will it be upgraded to 4 with issues fixed?
    or
    will all the issues be resolved in vers. 4 then applied to vers.3.5 without an upgrade to vers. 4?
    or
    Will 3.5 disappear and be replaced by vers. 4 without its extra features, such as its firewall ect?

    Then the posts regarding issues that will be resolved in vers. 4 what then will become of 3.5?

    EDIT: Firefox and other issues posted in other threads

    As I understand it vers. 3.5 and vers 4 will be two entirely different AV's.

    If it has been explained before, please post a link with details.

    3.5 - 4.0 bewildered...:doubt:

    It will be upgraded to v4 with the issues fixed - the products are very different but still accomplish the same things (v4 does more but it has all of the v3 features).

    Automatic updates are pushed out slowly and this is a major change so v3 users probably won't be automatically updated immediately but you'll be able to install v4 over v3.
